Amitabh Bachchan's Pink on the verge of becoming tax-free, believes Shoojit Sircar

Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar is extremely proud of Pink and wants the film to be exempt from entertainment tax.

"We want it to be tax-free. People have been asking us to make it tax-free. I think we are on the verge of making it tax-free," Sircar said at a press conference.

The contemporary youth-centric film conveys a strong, socially-relevant message about the choices young women of today make and about respecting those.

Narrated in a linear manner, the simply presented film, essentially a courtroom drama, is powerful because of its dialogues and performances.

Sircar, who is known for his content-driven films, says he would make stories only when there is some lesson to be learnt.

"People ask me 'why don't you do potboilers?' But in school, I learnt only one thing -- that there has to be some moral to the story. And if there is no moral, there is no point in making a film.

Directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhary, Pink stars Amitabh Bachchan in the role of a lawyer. The film also features Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Andrea Tariang, Angad Bedi, Piyush Mishra and Dhritiman Chatterjee in key roles.

Recently, filmmaker Ashoke Pandit said that Pink is a "movement" that needs to be made tax-free at theatres.
